One of the reasons I wanted to visit was that my recently dead mother had rated it as one of her fondest memories of Florence; I wish I could say the same! First, the opening hours... 8.15 to 13.50 - one of the cushier jobs...More

We had a great morning wandering through this museum getting a feel for how the wealthy Florentines lived. Such opulence is seen in this palace still. Original wall coverings, ceilings and many, many artefacts show what wealth these people really had. This multi-storey building will...More

We stopped outside this palazzo on a walking tour of Florence and learned that it was decorated and furnished in period fashion. Entering was not part of our tour, but when we found ourselves back in the area with about 45 minutes of free time...More

don't miss this gem in central Florence. The wall paintings are exquisite, and the collections are phenomenal. This was probably my favorite site in Florence. Make sure you see the bedrooms – they can easily be missed, thinking that it is just a service corridor.

I have been fortunate enough to visit Florence many times. Because of my interest in the decorative arts of Italy, the Davanzati was at the top of my list of places to visit. Every summer I was in Florence the museum was closed for continuing...More

This medieval palace dating back to the 14th century was once home to a wealthy banker, it is very well preserved, now housing a museum , highly recommended, not your normal tourist attraction

I've been to Florence numerous times but never had a chance to visit this perfectly preserved (the graffiti is still on the walls!) medieval palace of a wealthy banker. It is truly exceptional and not to be missed. There are quite a few rooms but...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

We didn’t go to the top floors when we went, they were not available during our stay. However, you can probably get your hotel concierge to back a reservation for you that includes the top.

Hi there, I think 15 to 20 mins maximum 😊I can reckon if they have already done lots of Florence then it would be quicker 😃
